Cooking has reached higher levels. Astronauts in space have made the first space-baked cookies. They said the chocolate chip cookies looked out of this world. They are the first food to be baked in space from raw ingredients. Space food is usually made on Earth. It is pre-packaged and then heated up in space. Eating freshly baked food will make astronauts happy. It will remind them of home. This is important for astronauts who go to the moon or Mars.

Baking the cookies was not as easy as the astronauts thought. Cookies take 20 minutes to bake. The space cookies needed longer. The first cookie was undercooked. It was more raw dough than cookie. The space bakers turned up the temperature and baked the dough for longer. They baked the fifth cookie for 130 minutes. No one knows how it tastes. It is in a laboratory in Texas. Scientists will test it to see if it is safe to eat.
